Efforts to obtain a comment from the head of the region, Henry Ngang’au, failed as he could not be reached via phone call.

 

 

“They are in class now and doing well,” the principal said, adding that the lunch program enabled the students to ease their absence from school, where they were involved in boda-boda enterprises and supplying illicit liquor.

 

 

The school which has a population of 1,028 students with 22 teachers recorded an average standard score of 5.5 during KCSE last year.

 

 

The total number of registered candidates this year is 264. The Principal called for adding more infrastructure and 20 teachers to the institute. They have so far constructed a dormitory for girls and a borehole which is almost complete.
